With his highly praised studio album ‘Baby Face’ now in the rear-view mirror, New York-based singer and songwriter Ryan Jantz is wasting no time in getting back on the wagon with his latest single ‘Real’.
With nods to the likes of Glass Animals, Toro Y Moi, and Mac DeMarco throughout his latest track, ‘Real’ is the woozy and laid-back treat we all need right now. Self-produced by the man himself, he continues his adventures in the psych-pop world thoroughly on here.
Speaking about his new offering, he said, “‘Real’ is on its face about authenticity and the means to achieving it. I was reading War and Peace as my major project in quarantine and reflecting a lot on the significant internal growth and spiritual development of these characters over the course of 20 years (and 1500 pages). I think the question I was trying to hit on was, essentially, how intelligent, or even introspective, does one have to be to arrive at a heightened state of self? I also wanted to capture the sense of feeling “real” and at peace with oneself and yet still sensitive to judgment and ostracization, and to explore that contradiction and tension.”
